Mark Cuban: Major League Baseball Has Become 'Bud Selig's Mafia'

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is still upset he wasn't allowed to buy the Texas Rangers when they were up for sale and blames Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig.

"Horrible," Cuban said when Jay Leno asked him about Alex Rodriguez's suspension. "I think it's disgraceful what Major League Baseball is trying to do to him."

"Look, it's not that he doesn't deserve to be suspended. He does. But they have policies in place: first time offender 50 games, second time a 100. 214 games? That's personal."

"And I've got to tell you, my experience is with Major League Baseball -- and after this there's not chance I'm going to be able to buy a team -- that it's basically become Bud Selig's mafia. He basically runs it the way he wants to run it."

"They don't want me to buy a team. When I was trying to buy the Rangers, even before the Cubs, it was an open auction. And I sat in there with my good hard earned money trying to bid and they did everything possible to keep me from buying the team."

"They had lawyers in there trying to change the rules, they had people in there trying to put up more money. I mean it was horrible. For him to come out and just attack A-Rod the way he did was just outside the rules."

"Obviously Bud Selig does not like to be tested. He does not want anybody to stand up to him," concluded a tanned Cuban.
